Nicolas Magand on the internet

My name is Nicolas Magand and I live in Paris, France. I work as a social media and engagement editor at the Global Editors Network, a non-profit aimed at promoting innovation and sustainability in the news industry. Here I blog mostly about tech and media, but many other topics can face my enthusiasm.

The hottest fashion trend

Caroline Haskings, writing for The Outline, describing the dataviz of annual average temperatures:

Our entirely avoidable plunge into oblivion, as a nice poster.

Not sure about the avoidable part in 2018, but indeed this pattern looks very good. So good in fact, that I saw another great use for this kind of pattern, just this week on kottke.org: blankets.

According to climate scientist (and crocheter) Ellie Highwood, these blankets are a subset of “temperature blankets” made to represent, for example, daily temperatures over the course of a year in a particular location.

I can see this become a – sad, tragic – fashion trend for other things: phone cases, socks, window blinds, ties, &c. The pattern looks that good.

Whenever I watch Columbo, as you should, I take some screenshots.

Making lists is something on which I love to waste time; my—ever-changing—favourite songs list was a real challenge.

On the great Letterboxd, I keep a log the movies I watch, rate them, sometimes review them. 

If you speak French, I highly recommend my friend Nabil's podcast: Art Oriented.
